[resolved] Cannot login (7 posts)

    Hi, I read really similar problems but mine is kind of different.

    I create one page, edited it a little bit and took a brake. 2 Days later I wasn't able to login to my admin panel. I thought I mistyped my password when I was installing my website so I had no choice but to create another one.

    I typed my password carefully and correctly. Now I cannot login again and I'm pretty sure I use the correct password.

    In both situation I tried to recover my password but the links didn't work.

    Please help me ASAP and give me detailed instructions, if you can.

    There are several other ways to reset your password -

    Thanks, it helped but I think it will happen again later and this isn't supposed to happen

    Why? Have you asked your hosting company about this issue?

    This is not about the host. I have about 15 websites on the same host, some of them created with WordPress months ago and they work perfectly. The problem is with the new ones I created. Like I wrote previously, I am absolutely sure that I wrote the correct password and it didn't work. It's like someone's changing the password or the system changes itself.

    So have you tried one of the other methods in the article I linked above? If "someone is changing" your password, you should look into whether your site has been hacked.

    Also, some hosting companies have instituted extra login security measures - http://wordpress.org/support/topic/brute-force-attacks-and-wordpress?replies=2
